Redemtion and Voting Conversation Guide
In the United States, the concept of redemption, as it applies to voting rights, can be a distant dream for those who have been incarcerated for offenses small or large. One punishment we have enforced is the revocation of voting rights, which often may be restored only by a lengthy and costly legal process. For example, in Florida 1.6 million former felons are permanently disenfranchised. In this guide, we’ll explore our beliefs about redemption and who should or should not have the right to vote.
